Scoop dough using a 50 mm ice cream scoop onto prepared baking sheets keep them about 2 inches apart to leave room for them to expand when baked.

I add scoop the rest of my cookies onto a separate cooke sheet and freeze them, after they are frozen I transfer them to a ziploc bag and store them in the freezer until I am ready to bake another batch of cookies.
